Description
About The Book

A prakarana in old Hindi (one of the regional mixed dialects), Vicara-candrodaya elucidates the basic concepts of Advaita Vedanta in the form of questions and answers. Pandit Pitambar, the author of the text, presents this work as a dialogue between a guru and his disciple. This book is an English translation of Vicaracandrodaya, by S. Bhuvaneshwari. It is spread across 249 questions and their answers, and takes the reader into the essence of the entire Vedantagastra. It also has a Laghu-vedanta-kaa explaining the basic Vedantic terms and a chapter as "index" providing quick reference to the basic concepts of Advaita Vedanta.

The author enunciates that a true knowledge seeker who studies this text under a brahmanistha guru will get to know the "secrete knowledge" of Vedanta. And this knowledge will dispel darkness from his mind as the rising moon dispels darkness from the world. However, he insists that it should be studied from a guru with graddha as Vedanta cannot be grasped without the guidance of an enlightened teacher. Also, this book serves as a ready reference to the basic concepts as discussed in Paticadat of Vidyaranya and Vicarasagara of Nigcaladasa.

This volume is both a guide to the beginners in Vedanta and a text for nididhyasana. It will benefit all the people who dwell in the domain of Vedanta.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
